What to share re my dear aunt? She is mellow and smiles now. It is the new med (Seroquel) and at times I struggle with this medicating for effect process. I get it. I understand the needs for meds…for me. I struggle with my making these decisions for another. I have not had to do this for a child (hyper activity, etc.). So, I will ease my mind and qualms and reap the benefit of my aunt being calmer and less agitated. I will enjoy her clarity, fleeting as it will remain (she asked me last night how my back was feeling…alluding to my surgery a month ago…a rare recollection of a recent, past event).
I enjoyed spooning chocolate ice cream and a brownie into her mouth last night. As she tasted the chocolate her eyes rolled upward in delight. She is such a lover of chocolate. The picture above is her holding a small, live Christmas tree with ornaments. My aunt loves Christmas.
